As much as I try to live a minimalist life, I always find my bathroom shelves and cabinets looking more like a mini Sephora after an earthquake rather than the clutter-free, pristine powder room I aspire to have. I’ve pondered with the idea of getting rid of everything, but for some reason, I feel the need to have an assemblage of highlighters, lipsticks, and mascaras at all times. This leaves but one option for me: stock up on some the best makeup organizers.
During my search for ways to tidy up all of those beauty products, I found something for every item, from acrylic tubes designed to help makeup brushes stand up right on display to woven canisters that add warmth to my bathroom. I’ve even discovered beautiful leather pouches, like Cuyana’s elegant round cases and Brother Vellies’s artistic doodle-covered cosmetic bags. Honorable mention also goes to the classic hard-case Caboodles kit. Vogue senior beauty editor Lauren Valenti recently used the hero organizer to help her edit down her makeup collection. “In tandem with my desire to live more simply and sustainably, this relic of my childhood was quickly catalyzing a long overdue, very adult lifestyle change,” says Valenti.
